Kiss no toads!
Posted by kathy c on November 11, 2016, 8:37 pm
Just a warning that not all the dangerous critters in our area have sharp parts! Our 50 pound dog (ten years old but thinks she's a puppy and chases everything that moves) killed a poisonous toad today in our back yard. We immediately took her to Melaque and the vet who was able to help. Luckily she is now doing better. He said it would have killed a smaller dog. Devastating to see an animal go through that. In researching on the internet, it seems these toads come out after rains, and since rain is in the forecast.... keep your pets safe!
